sights to iraq just days after 9/11, i stood up and opposed this war, knowing that it would distract us from the real threats we face. when john mccain said we could just "muddle through" in afghanistan, i argued for more resources and more troops to finish the fight against the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11, and made clear that we must take out osama bin laden and his lieutenants if we have them in our sights. john mccain likes to say that he'll follow bin laden to the gates of hell - but he won't even go to the cave where he lives. [cheers and applause] and today, as my call for a time frame to remove our troops from iraq has been echoed by the iraqi government and even the bush administration, even after we learned that iraq has a $79 billion surplus while we're wallowing in deficits, john mccain stands alone in his stubborn refusal to end a misguided war. that's not the judgment we need. that won't keep america safe. we need a president who can face the threats of the future, not keep grasping at the ideas of the past.

delivered in planes flying over iraqi airspace. the obama administration pressured iraq not to allow those flights this year, but they did resume in july, allowing iranians to avoid border crossings on the ground, which are controlled by syrian rebels. despite its claim iraq and the u.s. have a strategic partnership, iraq's tolerance of iran's using of their airspace starkly points out the limits of the obama administration's influence there. vice president joe biden made an august phone call to the iraqi prime minister to discuss the syrian crisis, and a source told the "times" mr. biden registered concern over the iranian flights. >> well, now here's a look at some other stories making news early today in america. in florida surveillance video shows a car plowing into a restaurant after it was accidentally put in reverse. the good news, nobody was inside at the time, and the two people in the car only suffered minor injuries. but the bad news, it happened just a half an hour before that restaurant was going to open for its first day of business. >>> well, in massachusetts, more car troub

[ applause ] barack obama is the kind of leader my father wrote about in "profiles and courage." he doesn't just do what is easy, he does what is hard. he does what is right. my father couldn't run for a second term. it was left to his brothers, his family and the generation they inspired to fight for the america they believed in. now it's up to a new generation our children's generation to carry america forward. so let me say to the young and the young at heart, barack obama is only president because you worked for him because you believed in him because uconn vinceed your parents to vote for him. young people have always led america towards a brighter future. it happened in 1960. it happened in 2008 and if you show the same spirit in this election as you did in the last, i know that we'll make history again on november 6. thank you.
